Oh, my.  and I feel for this woman.  What are we supposed to do if we can't use physical force?  

A former Lyft driver in Bammel, Texas, has hit out at the ride-sharing app for deactivating her account after she threatened to pepper spray a passenger who was allegedly masturbating in her car.

Naomi R, 22, who is not sharing her last name for fear of repercussions, said she was transporting a man in the middle of the night when he asked if he could pay her $20 to stay and chat and began stroking her hair.

She asked him to stop and he did, but when she pulled over at a gas station the bright forecourt lights revealed his penis was exposed and he was 'touching himself'.

    She should've have sprayed the mace in his face and then sprayed his junk ( that would have made his junk burn and hopefully irrirated the skin around it). Then she should've gave a good swift hard ass kick to his junk. Lyft should have given her a big fat bonus. They also should pay a cleaning fee. She can probably come up with a lawsuit. For what Lyft/Uber pays they are crazy to think as a driver we shouldnt carry protection. I want to come home to my family after my shift in one piece. Put these idiots who make these rules in a car at 2 am picking up drunks and taking them to hoods cops try to avoid.  These companies are so ridiculous. We are not their employees they should not be able to dictate if we carry a weapon. A few months ago an Uber picked up a 22yr old male  in Philly. They pulled off came to intersections shots were fired passenger shot in foot . Police found a gun either belonging to passenger or gunmen. They need to change their rules. SMH

    This is sexist, because if a woman masterbated in the car and a man used a pepperspray, he'd be put in jail immediately.

    Does mace and pepper spray work in such close quarters and in confine spaces like a car?  

    or is that like a suicide bomb where everyone has to jump out of a vehicle?

    I've never used one, and honestly, I don't know how these things work.

      I personally wouldnt use mace in my car because of that reason. Yes it would effect you inside the car. So not only would you mace your passenger you will end up with the effects also.  If sprayed outside the car you have a better chance. Unfortunately Any weapon you may have isnt going to work inside the car especially when car is moving and passenger is behind you.  Even calling police is an issue because obviously rider will know what you are doing. Whatever weapon (if you carry one) that you pull out be prepared to use it and try to be at safe distance if at all possible. You dont want passenger being able to grab it and use it on you.

        @ChatswickFan and @momof4, Isn't mace a bludgeoning device?

        but yes, if you can swing this thing within a car, all the glory to you.  You may rip up your upholstery though.

          Mace technically is a trademarked brand of pepper spray where I come from. It is in a cannister that contains a chemical you spray into someone face to try and incapacitate them . Mace is also a cooking spice. Your pic is known to me as a mace club or mace weapon. I guess whatever time period your looking at  or whatever dictionary your using is how you deem to use it. Thank you for your input and great pic. I may not want to use that in my car but out of my car it seems like a great weapon.

            I AM SO DUMB.  Of course it's a spray.   Thanks for the info.

            I actually didn't know it was a brand name though.  I will need to capitalize that from now on.

    I am offended that the M-word is in all caps.

      Why?  It's a unsolicited sexual act and could possibly be construed as a threat of sexual assault, A.k.a. rape.   It's a very relavant consideration when establishing motive.

            Sorry.  I am old school.  Whenever I see all caps, I read it as someone yelling.  so I feel like they really accentuated the word, "masterbate", even though it's a perfectly normal word, especially used in a news article.  I just felt like it didn't have to be emphasized like this is a middle school playground.
